After visiting the school and meeting the director, I have decided to apply to the International School of Traditional Midwifery in Ashland, Oregon. Part of the application involves interviewing three midwives, at least two of whom are working out of a hospital setting. There aren't any midwives living near me, so I am sending out a call for help--if you are a midwife, I would love to interview you! This could be done over phone or email. If you would like to help me out please reply to this thread or PM me. Thanks very much in advance!
can you become licensed in WA from going to this school? or do you care?
I know of some mws sans license and a couple CNMs one LM/naturopath in Tri-cites-- you could interview a couple of them--- is there still a CNM up in Okanogan? also Linda Marks in Spokane is an LM--
there are several more west but the gals in Eastern Washington are going to know better what you would be working around the pace, medical-interface, client populations and things that they find helpful to promote practice.
